July 19, 2018. Madison Park Group (MPG) is pleased to announce the release of its H1 2018 Engineering, Design, PLM & Simulation Software Market Update. Please click here for access to the report.
The broader design and engineering software landscape is rapidly changing as increasingly software and electronics are being tightly coupled with mechanical components and the availability of large amounts of data infiltrate the product design and execution marketplace. It is increasingly difficult to differentiate vendors as pure-play design solutions due to the rapid convergence of PLM/CAD, simulation and engineering disciplines.
MPG’s practice in design and engineering software is spearheaded by Ralph Verrilli and Michael Magruder. Mr. Magruder commented, “We hold active discussions with all of the key vendors in the design and engineering ecosystem and pride ourselves on being collaborative confidants and thought leaders in this market. Given the highly technical nature of this software market, we must go the extra mile by immersing ourselves in our clients’ product strategy. Our track record speaks to our unique ability to get to the heart of the strategic value of these product offerings and marrying them with appropriate corporate strategies. ”
MPG actively tracks numerous feature capabilities including design collaboration, data management, geospatial display, manufacturing execution, advanced process controls, among many others. Recently the MPG team has noted a number of key trends and developments:
Manufacturing / engineering software vendors are rapidly altering product positioning to offer more comprehensive, horizontal solutions
Significant focus on extending and enhancing depth of product integrations with core solutions in CAD, CAM, and CAE as well as ALM and other adjacencies
Engineering software and PLM companies are looking for ways to better leverage sensor data throughout the lifecycle of products, from improved design and redesign through maintenance and repair and are making acquisitions to support this effort
